Gluten Free Scalloped Ham and Mac Casserole Recipe

The one food I could always count on my kids and their picky friends eating was macaroni and cheese. I kept a box in the pantry at all times for days I was rushed. It made a great base for casseroles and one pot meals. Plus, who ever turned down a side of macaroni and cheese? No one, that’s who. When my daughter was diagnosed with Celiac, my quick dinners and sides with my box of macaroni and cheese were over. My first thought on finding out she was gluten free, “Seriously? There goes all my easy dinners! So. Not. Cool. ” You can imagine my delight when I discovered Horizon Organic Gluten Free Macaroni and Cheese. I can’t stress enough how happy I am to have easy meals back on my menu!

DIY Spring Clothespin Wreath

I started my patio redo last year with big dreams. I planned a gorgeous place to eat outdoors, relax and entertain. Alas, my hopes went down the drain when my father and daughter began having health issues. My crafty ideas and inspirations were put on hold. This year I decided to try again. I drew up a patio plan, much to the dismay of the rest of my family, as I have big plans they must help accomplish. I also began searching for DIY décor items on pinterest and found this cute clothespin wreath. I decided to do a pinterest remake, giving it my own special touches.
